Blooming Echinocereus Cactus Desert Landscape Arizona

A colorful Echinocereus Cactus blooming across the arid landscape of the Arizona desert in the USA.

The Echinocereus Cactus is a type of ribbed, mainly small to medium in size which has large flowers blooming in vibrant hues. There are about 70 species of the cactus across the Southern United States and Mexico thriving in a rocky landscape where they receive an abundance of sunlight.

Also know as the hedgehog cacti, the fruit which the Echinocereus Cactus produces is edible. The flowers are extremely showy and to ensure they grow to their fullest, the plants thrive in dry soil during the winter and need more water as they near their blooming stage.

The plants are fairly short growing with cylindrical stems, but often these stems branch out sometimes growing sideways and each cacti will then have more than one flower. While visiting the Arizona Desert in the USA as the Echinocereus Cacti are blossoming, the landscape is beautiful but like any cactus, they are prettier to look at than they are to touch.
